Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts in Politics

If you missed the last GOP debate, they are still showing re-runs. Regardless, Trump has really shown over the last couple of weeks how important, special, self centered, egotistical, blah, blah, blah, he is. In an interview with Bret Baier, Trump addressed the issue with his foul mouth at rallies. He stated that that would change when it got closer to him being elected. That it would not be a problem because HE CAN CHANGE AND BE ANYTHING HE WANTS TO. Hmmm. That doesn’t sound good, does it? Then he gets to the last debate and starts trashing G. w. Bush about invading Iraq, knowing there were no WMD’s, and that the 9-11 attacks were because Bush wasn’t keeping us safe. You know, we already dispelled those myths and proved where the change of events and faults lie. I guess Trump wasn’t listening; mainly because he was a devout Dem at the time and, apparently still is. Zebras can’t change their stripes. After the debate, Trump made a comment about all the booing he was getting while trashing G. W.. Know what he said? He stated that the pledge he signed was a two edge thing where he could run another party and that Rense Priebus should be fired. Don’t say you weren’t warned about this knucklehead Trump.

We went through this crap with Obama. Obama hung himself many times over in his first year and what happened? He got re-elected. Sanders, a devout Socialist, listed as an Independent, is running for President on the Dem side, and he is getting strong support. Hillbilly, who should be in jail or worse, still has a massive following. What does this all mean? People are still sheep. Voters are not doing their homework and this country is going to hell in a hand basket with people’s eyes wide open. What needs to happen to change all this and put things in their proper order?
1) Make Sanders run under the Independent ticket.
2) Kick Trump off the GOP ticket and let him run with one of the other parties or, better yet, let him run under the Trump party banner.
3) Have the GOP coalesce around all members (conservatives, moderates and establishment)–just no RINOs like McCain, Trump, et.al.
4) Do your homework and vote. DO NOT SIT AT HOME AND HOLD YOUR NOSE!!!!
When a conservative wins, abolish the NEA, make it mandatory to learn every aspect of the Constitution and give free one-way tickets to anyone that wants a different democracy than what America stands for. There are plenty of countries out there with the ideology these idiots are trying to inflict on us and, while we are at it, ex-patriate these fools so that they can no longer call our Republic “home”. While we are at it, teach skills to re-train individuals how to obtain and utilize common sense. Yes, I know I am barking at the moon here but, then again, I ain’t fooled by Trump either. Silly rabbit!

I could say something like “stupid is as stupid does”, “you can’t make this stuff up”, “we are living in Bazarro-world” or any number of other things, and they would all be correct, and they would all have been said many times before, so why bother.

As you know, the Iowa caucus is over and Cruz when on the GOP side. I am surprised at the overall outcome; surprised that Huckabee got out but “happy Gilmore” still trudges on in his own happy world. I mean when you get 12 votes and there were 100+ “other”, some little voice is commanding him to stay in. Okay, listen to that little voice. The way Trump talked at the caucus speech, he and Huckabee are CLOSE friends now. Betcha Trump gets Huckabee’s delegates. Betcha Huckabee openly regrets that later on down the road too. Only speculation.

Now, on the Socialist……oops…..Dem side, Hillbilly came out on top over Sanders by…..hmmm….4 votes. But did she really? It appears that there was a virtual tie between them and Democrat rules (That’s right. They where totally prepared for a tie breaker) states you can decide with a coin toss. That seems like pure luck to me. The GOP rules do it scientifically. They do rock/paper/scissors.

Do you maybe think that these Dem “rules” are used universally, like making decisions in seats of power? Maybe that is why those Americans in Benghazi died. They lost the “coin toss”.

Let me just put a few things out there. We have 3 candidates on the Dem side running for President: an old “white” socialist, an old “white” criminal hag, and an aging “white” shirtless liberal. First off, where are there any candidates of “color”? This party touts that they are for those of “color” (being the racists that they are) yet they don’t have any candidates to stand for their own “race”. Oh, that’s right. They already burnt that candle on the present guy. Yeah, that worked out well. Anyway, why is there any following for a corrupt, traitorous, incompetent criminal as Clinton? By the same token, how can a socialist, which is a theology entirely opposite of our capitalist system, garner so much support? And a tax and spend liberal that has had most signed bills on taxes reversed in his state because it hurt the state and its people. Young, ignorant voters is why. I will say no more than it is a failing of the public education system that either teaches the Constitution incorrectly or not at all. If we require aliens to have a working knowledge of our Constitution to become citizens, why don’t we absolutely require it of our own citizens? Despicable.

We have a rouge President and government that has done everything possible to circumvent their duties to uphold the Constitution of the United States. The citizens are upset and we are seeing many converts (usually happens when you hit people in their wallets or take away their livelihoods). On top of that you have an unwilling Congress that throws up it hands and says “what can we do?”. First the GOP needed the House and they got that. Nothing happened because they said they needed the Senate. So then they got that but still nothing happened and the next excuse was “we need the Presidency”. The GOP is scared. They laid on their backs and said no impeachment. The laid on their backs and said no government shutdown. They never held back monies for egregious executive orders or even healthcare that they never got a say-so in. Rather, they gave all the monies requested for this rogue government, biding their time for a sunnier sky. These clowns are as bad as what the Dems are and, as the Dems have shown the way to be corrupt, so goes these “establishment” types.

And the citizens are pissed. At least the ones that are astute to how this government should run, knowledge of the Constitution, and an understanding that they are being lied to at every turn. This is what I would consider the “perfect storm” for a conservative candidate and we have many in the race. The GOP used to be the party of conservatism but it has been continually corrupted for decades and those that are conservative are scorned at every turn. We have true conservatives (or the best we have seen in a very long time) yet there is a wild card……Trump. I stated before that I like what Trump was doing in “playing” on those issues that strike a chord with the people. But Trump is no conservative and never will be. The National Review Gave that a spin but this was nothing new to anyone that could see through this carney barker. He and Ted Cruz have been civil when Trump has been trashing all the other candidates until, of course, Trump was taking “second place” in the Iowa caucus, the first caucus to come. In an interview with CNN Trump talks about how nasty Cruz is and that no one likes him or can get along with him. Trump is barking and his lead soars past Cruz. Why? The same reason that anyone wants to vote for the idiots on the Dem side. People just refuse to do their homework. The first and BEST chance in a long, long time to take the Presidency and, possibly, get the GOP back to its roots and Trump is the leader. Imagine that. And he can deal with anyone and he can deal with the Dems cause Pelosi and Reid (who won’t be around, thank goodness) and Schumar and others like him, and he can get deals done. What deals? If the GOP has majority in the House, the Senate and take the Presidency, the Dems are no longer a factor. There are NO DEALS TO MAKE! So is he going to deal with foreign governments? What deals can he make? Yes, I consider the government as a business; a non-profit business. It needs to run as efficiently at with the least amount of people as possible. A business savvy individual would do alright I guess but isn’t that what picking the right people in the cabinet are for? Isn’t it better to have an individual who knows law and the Constitution (not some fraud from Harvard who says he teaches Constitutional law and then circumvents those laws) rather than someone who knows how to make a buck and screw people? I feel that this opportunity to change America back to a nation of values and principles will be lost on nothing more than people being sheep going to the slaughter yet once again. All I can hope is that people get there heads out of their ass so that they may see the “epiphany” necessary to keep from going down the whirlpool of another toilet flush.

You may not think the two are in “common” with one another but let’s have a quick look. Do you remember when Obama made an executive order to study guns and gun violence as a disease? No? It is nothing new and many Presidents have tried to politicize the CDC and its findings. Read this to refresh your memory. Now do you remember? Okay, let’s move on. Creigh Deeds, a Virginia state Senator, had a mentally unstable son who was getting help from the state. His son was released because they couldn’t find a bed for him. His son stabbed him the next day and then shot himself. Deeds is a Democrat and pro gun. Deeds is sueing the state. Deeds is not touting gun violence. He is touting a failed mental health system and incompetent evaluators. Too many mental health facilities have been closed because crazy people have rights too. Well, if crazy people have rights and are left roaming the streets unmonitored, why are politicians (read “hacks”) trying to make gun owners as mentally ill? Oh, stop your ignorance. You know exactly that has been another one of their game plans. “No one is trying to take people’s guns”. Yeah, right.

Now with that prelude, you will understand my skepticism on the matter I am about to relay. As I have repeatedly told you, I don’t believe in coincidence and with the current “urging” for more gun control and the links I have relayed above, this is another one of those faux coincidences. I went to the doctor 2 days ago for my yearly physical. After the start of the new year, I always have to confirm that all related information on my residence, billing, and medical provider have not changed. So the first pre-printed sheet I perused to make sure all data was correct and I signed it. The second sheet told me that I was accountable for any charges not covered or paid by Medicare or my health provider. I signed that one too. The third sheet told me of the HIPA practice and receiving my sheet of information. I signed that. The fourth sheet threw me for a loop. It was 16 questions that had no bearing on the other pages. It was a questionnaire that was completely focused on one issue. Here are some of those questions:
1. Do you have a difficult time going to sleep or staying asleep?
2. Do you frequently wake up in the middle of the night?
3. Do you have bad dreams?
4. Do you not want to get out of bed in the morning?
5. Are you depressed?
6. Have you before or do you want to hurt yourself?
7. Do you want to hurt others?
8. Do you get mad easily?
9. Do you yell a lot?
10. Do you throw things when you are angry?
Are you getting the picture yet? They don’t need to ask if you own guns (yet) until they established you are mentally unbalanced. There were two fluff questions that appear to be innocuous but I’m sure that there is some bizarre correlation. The questions were:
11. Do you take aspirin? (I guess that is for all the little voices you are hearing and it making your head hurt)
12. Do you have allergies to anything? (Yes, liberals!)
This starts the process. Who doesn’t raise their voice at times when frustrated? Who doesn’t have difficulty falling asleep if something pressing like a recent death or a nagging problem unsolved, disagreement with a spouse or possibly a flight or procedure to be done? Many things keep people from falling asleep at times, as well causing them to wake. Some people’s bladders won’t hold all night. Sometimes you wake trying to remember if you locked the front door, turned off something or left food out. Shoot, I can think of innocent counters to most of these questions. It appears that we are trying to see have far and how much mental illness has transpired. Sure makes it easy for grabbing guns, don’t you think?

If we are serious on taking care of mental health then we need to be serious about taking these people off the street and re-opening and building new mental health facilities (and that would mean LOTS of facilities, especially for all the whack liberals running loose). Who am I kidding. These assholes aren’t worried about taking care of a mental health problem, which is REAL. They are only worried about a gun problem (which doesn’t exist). Remember, guns don’t commit crimes; liberals do.

I have been busy lately. REAL busy. At times I am pulled in 10 different directions and that is not good cause my wife tells me I can’t multi-task. That has proven to be correct. Looking for some downtime, I was expecting Christmas to fulfill that need. I was wrong so I set my sights on New Years. After all people are usually slow moving on New Year’s Day and wanting to watch parades and football games and just lay back. Perfect. That was the plan BEFORE I got the e-mail from VCDL (Virginia Citizens Defense League). Being a member and wanting to do my bit during these insane times with politicians going on gun tirades, I figured that it would be an easy time of it at the Dulles Expo Center because who was going to go out on New Years and buy guns? Someone needed to man the table and I sacrificed some much needed downtime to accommodate. I figured that I would be the only knucklehead out there. When I showed up for the first shift I found out that that notion was just flat wrong. Where the booth normally has 3 to 4 people per shift manning it, we had some of the second shift hanging around and helping early. There were many more VCDL members that were there just because. THAT is what is known as dedication to the organization. The really strange part is that the show opened up at 3:00. I got there at 2:30 and had difficulty finding parking ANYWHERE! The line stretched around both sides of the building and wrapped around the back for those people wanting to get in. It stayed that way when my shift finished at 5:30. This is normally unheard of, especially on a holiday. I would have stayed longer myself but the kids were taking me to the movies for my birthday and, as stated, I needed some downtime.

Now the reason for the mob at the show was simple: people needed protection, ammunition and accessories because of what is going on in the world. We have fear of terrorism in our neighborhoods and still have the gang problems. The police are not as aggressive on crime as they were for fear of being sued or charged with a crime. Their own leaders and administrations aren’t backing them at times and some of the populace outright hate them. This causes more crime and less protection. It appears that true protection and defense is left in the hands of the people as it always was meant to be. Here in the Old Dominion we have a new added threat–our own government. These scumbag politicians will not be outdone by the scumbag federal politicians who illegally make law and steal rights that they have no legal right to do. Let me lay it out for you in case you are unaware of recent events.

Governor McAuliffe (aka McAwful) has a debt to repay for all the money Micheal Bloomberg threw at the last election. That debt is to use senselessness to get rid of guns. Since all his previous endeavors have failed, he is using the radical venue of “executive order”. You know where that comes from, right? This is what he is doing. In a nutshell he is restricting guns in ANY state owned and/or operated building. That means that there will be no carry at, say, ABC stores (and we all know that liquor stores are prime holdup establishments), the DMV and, hey, have you ever been traveling at night and had to take a bathroom break? Most people stop at the rest areas, especially for the women folk. State run rest stops with no security or police, late at night, dark, parking lots a ways from the building and not knowing WHO is in the building. In a nutshell, think of the governor making ALL state run/owned parks and buildings, that you pay for by the way, GUN FREE ZONES! Do you trust the governor with your life? Would you trust a mental patient babysitting your children? A problem is being solved where no problem existed. This makes no sense where rational people are concerned. And Senator Kaine and AG Herring are on board with this. Right out of the liberal playbook and in both state and federal governments pushing this pile of crap. THAT IS SCAREY and always has been.

Not to be out done and bowing to the Bloomberg money master, AG Herring (that would be Red Herring, who was an equally tragic and liberal hack politician as a supervisor in my county as well state Senator) did an audit with his state police commissioner and orchestrated his own anti-Virginian dance. HE determined that other states that Virginia has reciprocity with (states where Virginia honors their concealed carry permits here and they honor ours in their states) don’t “meet” our concealed carry criteria and, therefore, will not be honored come February 1st. In kind, it would appear that those states no longer recognized from the Old Dominian will not RECOGNIZE the Old Dominion either. Now you cannot safely carry a defense arm into other states which, technically makes more gun free zones and inhibits your right of self defense elsewhere. Why? Because Herring knows what is best for you and you should trust his judgement also, right? Here is the revealing parts from The WaPo, which is a main mouthpiece for the liberal nut jobs:

” Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced Tuesday that the commonwealth will no longer recognize out-of-state concealed handgun permits, part of a national push to circumvent legislatures opposed to tightening gun laws.”

Plain and simple: to circumvent legislatures… This means it doesn’t matter what laws the legislatures make because those in key positions of government HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE AND INTERPRET THEM ANYWAY THEY WANT. That is what a despot does. But then WaPo continues with its reveal:

“The move is in step with actions governors and attorneys general are taking to address gun violence without going through Republican-controlled legislatures.”

..without going through Republican-controlled legislatures. Has anyone done this type thing when they were Democrat-controlled legislatures? This is what dictatorial governments do. Call it fascist, communist, socialist or any other name but you can’t call it American because it is NOT what America stands for, by our Constitution. I feel shame and anger when the Old Dominion, the most patriotic state throughout history, elects and condones the abuse from the scumbags pushing this liberal anti-American and anti-Virginian crap. Most of it happens from the people who get too lazy to vote for whatever reason and excuse that they can live with without guilt or those ignorant people easily persuaded with lies because they are just too damn lazy to do the research and protect themselves but, more importantly, protect us from these predators and our rights. That is why I have only been a member of three organizations in my life: PADI, the NRA and VCDL.

VCDL is a grassroots organization in Virginia, the most potent and most powerful, that stands up for our gun rights. You may say “ACT, why are you so narrow minded and only worry about gun rights?” Well, since you weren’t paying attention before I will repeat myself yet again. The 2nd Amendment is what protects all the other amendments to the Constitution. Don’t doubt the truth or the obvious. Sane and rational people know this. Our founders knew this because they looked through history and other countries and their governments before they created a document that gave people true freedom never before seen anywhere else on this earth. That document has kept this Republic, yet others wish to destroy it. You can see it for yourself on a daily basis in the news. Logical people understand. The mental liberals don’t until they have to live it (the 2×4 between the eyes of a jackass to get attention) and they won’t live it cause they don’t want to know the truth. VCDL keeps Virginians safe by helping to create an environment where defense is allowed for all Virginians. The only way to stop a criminal is with self defense because criminals just won’t obey the law, no matter how many laws you make. THAT can be seen throughout history if you just do your research.

If you are a Virginian; if you believe in a right to self dense or defense of your family, friends or even strangers ( this would be considered a selfless person of which I am); if you own a gun and want to protect that right, then you need VCDL. You should become a member as it only costs $25 and it would be the best $25 you’ll have spent. Go to http://vcdl.org and look over the site. Learn what this organization does in a tireless fashion. ABSOLUTELY sign up for VA-Alert. We don’t give out your e-mail address and no one will contact you. You will have regular news information on what has and is occurring in Virginia as it pertains to your gun rights. It is unbiased, truthful news. Once you have an understanding on what is happening throughout the state, in Richmond and other counties, FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM and help us fight for you and with you. Join. I’ll say it again, JOIN. We need to show the nation that we will not be party to giving up our defensive freedoms and becoming willing sheep to the slaughter. JOIN.

With all the terror activity (read: gun violence) that is going on around us as, does anyone even remember about an Iran deal, made by Obama and Kerry, that would stop Iran from getting a nuke? It has UN sanctions to it and gives back billions of dollars to fund terrorism in exchange for not enriching uranium to weapons grade, getting rid of centrifuges, open inspections by their people telling everyone that everything is in order, blah, blah, blah. Ok, well, if you have forgotten, you can go to the official site here And press where it says “read the deal”. As you are reading and your eyes are glazing, you will see pictures likened to the 10 most wanted criminals in the world. They are not. They are the gatekeepers of this deal and part of YOUR government administration. I know, I know. I was also fooled at first but then I did some research and found out they were the good guys. Somewhere in that deal Iran cannot go forward with ICBMs. Uh-oh.

Here’s a nifty little article you can read from the Dem’s point of view. I must admit, though, that the Israelies do it better. Now when Samantha Powers was asked by Congress what was being done about the violation, she stated that a discussion was taking place. When re-questioned to what ACTION was being taken, Powers stated that the discussion WAS an action!

Why have these members of this administration not been, fired and indicted for treason is beyond me. They only believe in all things Muslim and jihadi. Have we even found and imprisoned one killer of Stevens yet? Didn’t think so.

In today’s world, a mob of outraged “social justice warriors” can get a person fired for the most inane of statements. The latest pound of flesh came from the President of ‘Mizzou’. However, his resignation is not enough. They are also demanding that he admit his “white privilege”. They also demand MORE black students – in spite of the fact that blacks score lowest on SAT/ACT.

As a nation, we have spent billions of dollars trying to help blacks erase the “education gap”, yet we reach this nadir of social justice mobs where everyone says that we are “racist”.

We spent billions on Head Start. It didn’t work.

Schools were integrated. That didn’t work.

Black schools with white teachers didn’t work.

Black schools with black teachers didn’t work.

Free computers and iPads didn’t work.

Huge private grants/gifts (e.g., Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates) didn’t work.

Entire school systems of blacks run by blacks and given MORE money per student than any other system didn’t work (see: Washington, DC).

So, it must be “white privilege” and racism! Tests are biased. Detroit and Baltimore are crime ridden and largely illiterate because of white privilege and the legacy of slavery! So let’s teach them to resent whites. Let’s teach that to young people! Yes, let’s teach that looting and rioting are “rebellion”. Let’s transform world class universities from centers of learning into “social justice” mad houses that preach myth and debauchery. There were students holding signs stating that they were “liberating” the campus – as if the campus were under military occupation. All would be good and right, if only more people like Sharpton were running the nation! For crying out loud, we actually have Presidential candidates pandering to the hooligans of the “Black Lives Matter” movement!

On top of that, we are being flooded with people from third world nations, and this is further changing the nature of our nation. Social atomization has encouraged short term time orientation, distrust, and corruption, which lead to social decay. And while this immigration flood is happening, jobs are being eliminated by automation. So we are importing MORE labor while simultaneously eliminating jobs. In what world does this make sense?

The ‘barbarians’ are not at the gate. They are in the town center!

How long can we hold the lid on this before it completely explodes? Another decade? 15 years?

Are we to continue to tolerate this social deterioration and intermittent rioting as preferable in attempts to appease them? Are we to continue to temporize, hold the lid on, and let our children worry about the larger ramifications later. Meanwhile, no one ever tells them the truth. Heck, telling the truth is all but banned in the mainstream. All the problems I listed above are blamed on “white privilege” as a given. So, the younger generations of blacks get angrier and more entitled, because they are taught to be angry and entitled. Young blacks feel they have the moral right to intimidate whites. They are taught that they can do no wrong and that whites can do nothing right. Heck, they are taught that “they” built this country. And they are taught this by leftist whites!
